Well, I have tried in the past, and I think I actually got libvirt 0.4.4 to build with MinGW/MSYS on Windows, but unfortunately only static libraries.On Sat, Apr 04, 2009 at 02:52:49PM +0200, Brecht Sanders wrote:Hi, Is there any way to compile libvirt with xen some support without depending on libxenstore? The reason I ask is that libxen can be built on Windows, but libxenstore seems to depend on the linux kernel, so I doubt it can be built for Windows.Honnestly I don't think anybody ever tried. The only drivers usually compiled on Win32 are remote and possibly test. Basically so far we expected libvirt on Windows to be only a way to access libvirtd remotely. But patches to improve/extend this are as usual welcome !
Bet back then only libxen was needed, not libxenstore.
Shouldn't it - in theory - be possible to build a libvirt for Windows without the need for a remote libvirtd?
What made me optimistical was the possibility to build libxen and the fact that Qemu also runs on Windows.
